Valentine Song by Robert Argyle Campbell

For each petal, a decade of love for my Valerie

Dearest, let these roses
In their purity,
Be a present symbol
Of my love for thee.

Underneath the blossom
Thorns are sure to grow;
Take heed lest you touch them,
They would pain you so!

Ah! my faults like thorns are,
But cannot they be
Hidden 'neath the flower
Of my love for thee?

by Robert Argyle Campbell, 1893

And though I am nowhere as close as I would want to
be with my Love, my love couldn't be any stronger.

I Love You Valerie.
